Sources for the Kingdom of Georgia?

I've spent several hours now searching online for sources and books about medieval Georgia, however I've run into the problem that almost none of the sources I can find are available as eBooks or PDF, almost all of which are in print and a good portion of those in print are exclusively in Georgian, which is problematic.

Anyone know a few good sources that I can find online?

Specifically I am looking for how their government worked, what the titles of the nobility were and of course what actually happened over there in the medieval period between the reign of Queen Tamar and the Mongol invasion, but honestly, at this point, I'll take anything I can get.

Mt first guess is that for scholarly material, you would be better off looking in French. While it is old and written from a certain point of view, you might find Lordkipanidze's Georgia in the 11-12th Centuries useful. I'm not sure there's a pdf out there, though.

An English translation of the Kartlis Tskhovreba is available: https://archive.org/stream/kartliscx...20Eng_djvu.txt

Thanks! I tend to study the Romans and later the Byzantines (if you don't feel like still calling them Roman). Obviously, this isn't really a problem I've ever had before.
